DescriptionHoward Cruse - Barefootz Funnies #3 Cover Original Art (Kitchen Sink, 1979). Barefootz has his feet polished by a talking frog with a shine box -- how typical of this whimsical and trippy Underground Comix. Howard Cruse recounts the origins of his popular feature, "I named the fellow Barefootz and cast him as the lead in a comic strip about a free spirit trying to fit into a conventional workplace environment. Barefootz first saw print in a one-shot tabloid-format comic strip that appeared in a short-lived underground newspaper in Birmingham, but his true debut as the star of an ongoing feature took place in 1971, in the pages of the Crimson-White, the student newspaper at the University of Alabama's Tuscaloosa campus. I myself never attended the U of A, but I had connections! The character ended up dominating my cartooning life through the 1970s." The image area measures 13.5" x 19", and the art is in Excellent condition. Step right up, and plunk down your bid on this Underground classic!
